Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Good morning Today in the morning after my bowel movment I discovered a little very red spot in the stool . I have a hemorrhoid as well & i am on metamucil to avoid constipation . I also suffer from IBS . I did since about a year & half a sigmoidoscopy & it was normal also i did an endoscopy & the doctor told me that i have sliding Hiatus Hernia . I ate the day before yesterday Tomato . Sometimes i feel cramps after bowl movment. Thanks Peter.
Thanks for your reply
yes it was one spot in a large brown/green sausage formed bowel movement.
yesterday i ate in dinner a lot of sauteed carrot , pees . courgette >
i forgot to mention that i had an anal fissure before >
may i ask one more question ?
if it is something else than hemorrhoid it can appear as just one spot in a big bowel movement ? or it must be more than one ? just for my info .
how to identify by eyeif it is an undigested food or blood ?
Thanks Dr for easing my fears .
Pls find attached what i found today in the morning after pooping .
I think it is Carrot as i ate it the day before yesterday .
yes but you even can't say if it is a blood or not ?
this photo of yesterday night & it is more orange than today's one
Would you check it pls ?
Ok should i stop searching my poop & leave it ?
i think it is Carrot & not something else & if it is blood you think it is from the hemorrhoid .
Am i right ?
thanks Dr Love
anyway i stopped eating red or orange colored food to see if it is undigested food or bleeding hemorrhoid ?
